    Hmm, so I guess WB-02 Menasor is being leapfrogged over in favor of WB-03 Computron?

    Looks neat, though I'm also hoping the rear wheels can be folded around onto the back.

    Just noticed the price... $97 for Afterburner vs the $89 for Brawl/Blastoff.

    It sure looks that way. I guess they figure that anybody who decided to wait for WB2 over M3 will continue to do so, but the best window to compete with Quantron is right now.

    Frankly, I think that the July 2014 release date is pretty much bullshit and they're only putting it out there to have a better shot at pulling customers away from Maketoys.

    Yup, yup and yup...

    The combined modes for both MTs and WBs Computrons, both have their pros and cons, making one better than other in certain respects...almost difficult for me to choose...but there is no question that MTs individual figures are far superior looking (I'm not talking which is more or less G1)...WBs look more kiddie, and MTs look more like an expensive toy...which is ironic considering WBs are pricier...

    This is just my opinion, so please, try not to take it personally...

    July release date seems somewhat unbelievable. This is too optimistic for me to pre order, its not even a early bird pricing.

    Elongated torsos. Looks like THAT is the Warbotron style... and I'm not a fan of that.

    I was thinking the same thing. I wonder if BBTS will get screwed this time to even the playing field and appease all the fan rage

    It looks ok but $100.00 bucks for one figure is to much why do that have to be so expensive.

    $100 bucks for this is insane. That's more than any limb bot I can remember.

    These appear to be each MP-10 sized though, or perhaps a bit smaller. Take a look at the pictures, each leg seems to be about the size of MP-10.
